Grigory Alekseyevich Aleksinsky (1879–1967) was a prominent Russian Social Democrat and Bolshevik who was elected to the Second Duma in 1907.

Born to middle class parents in Daghestan, he became politically involved when he was a student at Moscow University, from which he was excluded. He joined Georgi Plekhanov’s Yedinstvo group, and following 1905 he was part of the tendency.[1]

He subsequently became active with Vpered, on whose editorial board he served. However, he was critical of Alexander Bogdanov's concept of proletarian culture.[2]
